Recap by phillip woo

Racing Mate came with a wet sail after travelling second from the rear to get up in the final few strides for an upset win. He had given a good sight at Sha Tin recently in his first run following a bleeding attack in February and his only previous win had come over this course. He's still a fresh horse and might give a bold sight when next stepping out. Favourite Premiere found one just too good after briefly hit the front 30m out following a oneout, one-back run when failing to clear for the lead from an outside gate. He remains one to following over this Valley trip even up in class off a light weight. Nearly halving his quote, Mr Right wouldn't go away without a fight after assuming the front along the fence. He's always a chance over the minimum Valley trip. Diamond Master closed late after travelling third from the rear. He's racing consistently without winning and needs to strike an easier test. Happy Cooperation handed up the lead and took the sit outside Mr Right but couldn't go on with things over the last 100m. He might be better suited over the 1,200m were the earlier pace in a shade slower. No Money No Talk had no excuse following a prominent run along the fence. He can produce a positive run at times in this grade but is a better win prospect in Class Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (728)-ON LAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

At the time of declarations, N Callan was notified as the rider of MR RIGHT as a replacement rider for M L Yeung who was indisposed for this meeting following a race fall at Sha Tin on 11 June 2017.

It was established that Jockey Callan was declared as the replacement for M L Yeung without him being contacted to establish whether or not he was able to ride the horse.

As N Callan was not able to make MR RIGHT's allocated weight of 119 lbs, U Rispoli was further substituted as the rider of that horse.

Trainer L Ho was fined the sum of $2,000 for failing to contact Jockey Callan regarding this ride prior to declaring him as the rider of MR RIGHT.

In assessing the appropriate penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that Mr Ho was required to obtain the services of another jockey after being made aware at a late stage of M L Yeung's indisposition.

MAGIC AGILITY was slow to begin.

DIAMOND MASTER and MR RIGHT bumped at the start.

From a wide barrier, RACING MATE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, DIAMOND MASTER failed to muster speed.

Passing the 650 Metres, FLYING FORCE was steadied to avoid the heels of PREMIERE (J Moreira) which shifted in.

The Stewards were satisfied that the crowding to FLYING FORCE was accentuated by PREMIERE subsequently being awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY COOPERATION which was steadied by its rider outside the lead.

Nonetheless J Moreira was advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, he was not properly clear of FLYING FORCE when initially shifting in and for this he was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear prior to shifting ground.

After this, FLYING FORCE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PREMIERE and making the turn near the 550 Metres shifted out, resulting in DIAMOND MASTER being checked when crowded for room inside CIRCUIT KING.

Shortly after entering the Straight, NO MONEY NO TALK shifted out and brushed HAPPY COOPERATION.

Passing the 100 Metres, RACING MATE and CIRCUIT KING brushed as both horses shifted ground.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on NO MONEY NO TALK at the request of Trainer D J Hall.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, NO MONEY NO TALK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY COOPERATION and MAGIC AGILITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RACING MATE and PREMIERE were sent for sampling.
